Early yesterday, the New York Knicks lost point guard Stephon Marbury when he [abruptly left the team]. Last night, they [lost the game](http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/recap?gameId=271113021) and Marburyís replacement. Head coach Isiah Thomas lost his mind years ago.† Now, the season might be slipping away too.


The Knicks fell 113-102 to the Phoenix Suns last night, in the first game of their four-game road trip. The loss dropped them to [2-4 overall], and they still have to visit the Los Angeles Clippers, Sacramento and Denver over the next four days. Theyíll almost certainly leave the West Coast in last place in the Atlantic Division, and the team might have fewer members than some Native American tribes by the time they return home.


Aside from Starburyís absence, Quentin Richardson (hyper-extended elbow) and Zach Randolph (grandmotherís death) have also been M.I.A. Marburyís replacement, Mardy Collins, left last nightís game with an ankle sprain. Itís possible these are legitimate excuses, but itís also possible these guys just [donít want to get booed] anymore. After all, if I were a Knick, Iíd fake an injury too.
